Anyone who has dealt with a strong-willed child knows that it is no easy task to turn bad behavior around.

"It seems to be every parent's dream come true, a one-week, intensive crash course in parenting with a renowned Christian psychologist. Bestselling author Leman offers such a course in his latest child-rearing book, Have a New Kid by Friday: How to Change Your Child's Attitude, Behavior, and Character in 5 Days.
"Christian bestseller lists show that Leman has become one of the go-to authors for practical and prudent child-care advice, and Have a New Kid by Friday does not disappoint. Brimming with common-sense teaching based on anecdotal evidence from families Leman has counseled, the book encourages parents to teach their children the ABCs (attitude behavior, character) of life. He challenges families to change their children's behavior based not on threats or fear, but rather through cause and effect, and during the process, parents can expect to form deeper, more meaningful bonds with their children.
Broken into bite-sized chapters, Have a New Kid by Friday is a five-day challenge with a "Fun Day," when parents launch their new parenting strategy. Leman has written a practical guide that will likely become a Christian parenting classic."
